River Description


Ed Evangelidi testifies:
This run consists of two gorges. The upper gorge is straightforward Class 1-2 and has a mill race on river right. The lower gorge is through a hemlock forest, has steeper drops and has ruins of the old paper mill at the bottom on river right. Both gorges tend to collect downed trees from time to time. The takeout is on an arm of Prettyboy Reservoir and you shouldnÂt be here. So be quick to drop cars and load up, be as inconspicuous as possible driving by the area and look like a fisherman rather than a boater. Also consider skipping this lovely piece of whitewater in hunting season.

Upper Yough Access Guidelines and Fundraiser

6/30/2020
Charlie Walbridge

At Maryland's Upper Yough, one of the country's finest whitewater runs, American Whitewater has been maintaining the Sang Run Access for the past 20 years. With the 4th of July weekend coming up, a quick reminder that we are guests of the Town of Friendsville when we take out. In addition changing clothes discretely ad behaving respectfully, please observe social distancing during the pandemic. Garrett County has a low infection rate, and a mask when patronizing local businesses is the norm. We are also beginning our annual fundraiser to pay the expenses American Whitewater has at Sang Run. Out goal is $1,000, and we have already received $160. The Fee Box at Sang Run is still closed due to vandalism. We suggest $20 for the full season; $5 for one weekend. Please donate on line, or use the donation jar at the Wilderness Voyageurs shop at the takeout. Please go to https://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/Membership/donate/? and put "Upper Yough Access" in the comment box.

Don Millard - AW Super Upper Yough Access Volunteer!

6/25/2020
Charlie and Sandy Walbridge

American Whitewater super-volunteer Don Millard has been taking care of the Sang Run and Friendsville Access Areas on Maryland's Upper Youghioghenny River for the past several years. This bulds on a 2003 agreement between American Whitewater and Maryland State Parks, which owns the property. This year he rebuilt the change house and porta-pot shelter, set AW's sign back up, filled in potholes, and mowed acres of grass. He not only did the work, he donated the materials and machine time! This work givezs AW strong ties to the community (the place is also a fishing access) and local park managers. Also, thanks to him, boaters are not faced with a $5 access fee at both ends! Please remember, the pandemic is still on. Be smart. If you use the porta-pot, wash your hands or use sanitizer!
